I took my friend here for his 26th birthday. We had a fantastic time. Noah our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the brewery and very personal with our entire group. He was especially excellent when one of our group members took a spill going up the stairs. WELL DONE NOAH! It was cute brewery, having gone on some of... More

I was here in July with a couple of friends. I couldn't get over how inexpensive this was. We did the 6 pack tour. It was $15 and it included the tour, a beer during the tour, and a 6 pack of bottled Steam Whistle. I couldn't believe it. A 6 pack alone at the LCBO is $13.95. Our tour... More

A great place to visit for a drink, got a real taste of the lager and ordered it everywhere we ate or drank. The tour is good fun and very entertaining. Loved the place, called in 3 times!

Before we left the UK we pre-booked tickets for this tour and it was well worth it. On arrival we were given a sample of the pilsner to try which was very good. We were then taken on the tour by a young blond lady which made by 14 year old son very happy! (and probably my husband!) The tour... More

I've always wanted to do a brewery tour, with Steam Whistle being so close to the subway and go station, it was an easy choice to check out. I've always been a fan of Steam Whistle, so to see the process and learn about their eco-friendly initiative, it has gathered much more respect for the company as a whole. Our... More

Easy to book on-line. Tours fill up fast. Guide was funny. Beer was good. Got a bottle to drink right after it was packaged. Small brewery so got to meet all the employees. Lots of fun! Centrally located

Even if you don't get a tour, you can get a free sample. The place was nice and there are old train sitting around. Was a fun place to stop, have a drink and shoot the breeze.

I recently moved to Toronto from Ireland and a tour of the brewery was recommended to me by another Irish girl as something interesting to do while in Toronto. When you first enter the brewery you sign in for your tour. (you can pre-book your spot online for Monday-Thursday tours but Friday and weekend tours are filled on a first... More
